I had some minor hiccups trying to use some older 2GB(x2) tri-channel DDR3 1600 RAM running at 1.65V, I couldn't get it to run stable under-clocking /volting. I was able to get it to run on one stick (email@example.com), but that just wasn't going to cut it. Part List reflects what I ended up with.
I was able to get a mediocre 3.8Ghz OC, with some fuss. I need to spend some more time in the future trying to figure out Gigabyte's system/settings. (I think I could of saved the $25, and gotten the H97 board, I'm not impressed with Gigabyte's BIOS functionality.) I also updated the kernel from the default branch, it seems to have made my OC stable, at first I couldn't get any OC to complete boot. Kernel still needs a lot of work in the Haswell department, to cover all the bells and whistles, but out of the box it is functional. Check out i7z to get a realistic view of clock speeds/settings in Linux on the later Intel Chipsets Ivy, Sandy, Haswell, and their i# CPUs.
